Significant needs - Aged and deteriorating neighborhood schools district-wide
Improved learning environments for students - ensure up to date facilities and adequate classroom space, replace temporary portable classrooms
Safety and health upgrades district-wide - fire safety improvements, earthquake retrofitting, roof replacement, clean air and safe water, update playgrounds and playfields to meet current safety standards
Current record low financing and costs - lock in long term interest rates and construct costs at historic lows, if we act now.
Local jobs to improve schools - a $500 million investment in the Tacoma economy will cost the average homeowner just $58 more per year than the minimum required to maintain our existing buildings in their current condition.
